    For those of you interested in Conventions, there is a huge Sci-Fi convention coming to Omaha, Nebraska at the Civic Auditorium, May 4th-6th, 2001. They are gonna have tons of stars from Star Wars signing autographs, talking to the fans, and sharing their experiences from the films. There will be something for everyone, as they are gonna try to touch upon different areas of sci-fi/horror, making a very unique experience for all of us. I heard about this last month, and the news is beginning to spread like MAD! I just want it to be BIG!

    If you have ever been to a Sci-Fi Convention, you know that they are usually small events, gathering a few stars and a bunch of dealers.

    This one is gonna be different in that major studios are gonna be involved, hyping the big summer releases. VIP ticket buyers are even gonna have the opportunity to see pre-screenings of up to 3 major summer releases. I have never heard of this kind of thing happening for a sci-fi convention. But it IS happenging. They are working in conjunction with AMC Theaters and the studios to have a big event.

    If you are a Star Wars fan, you owe it to yourself to CHECK THIS OUT! I have heard names like Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Warwick Davis, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Dave Prowse. I gaurentee that you will not be disappointed. I want this to get enough attention so that they can do it every year. I'm tired of all of the big Cons only being in California and places like that. This is our chance to show that the best sci-fi fans live in the Midwest!

    AlphaCon 2001, May 4th-6th...be there!!!!!

    Interesting....I have not heard of this convention and I live an hour away from its location. I doubt Mark Hamill will be there, I think he's probably too busy with other things.

    Can you stop posting this in every "region" board of fanforce?

    He didn't post it in Grand Island, which surprises me.

    Well, I haven't seen any (on the Net at least). Think I recall seeing some people from Hastings and Chadron though.

    WalMart has the new Star Wars Legos! I got a TIE fighter on Sunday. The lego Stormtrooper is cool.

    Hey, I'm new and just saw this, I'll be there (if I can talk my parental units into letting me go :). I'd love to know how I could find anyone who will be there when I get there. I'll probably be as Darth Maul, with my trademark mirror-imaged face paint.

    I have no idea why it took me so long to look at this thread again.

    Anyway, I think that if you want to meet anyone in particular, it'd probably be best to coordinate with them beforehand where to look for each other. Somewhere not actually involved in hosting AlphaCon would probably work best, 'cause then saying that you'll be the guy in the Maul facepaint could mean something.
